This was the invitation we sent out for our 'grand gathering':
Poverty Truth Commission which will take place in Glasgow City Chambers (George Square, Glasgow) on Saturday 16th April between 2pm and 4pm (doors open at 1.15pm).
"For the last two years, Scotland's first Poverty Truth Commission has brought together two groups of people: people who exercise power and influence in Scottish society and people who love every day with the struggle against poverty.
"On 16th April 2011, members of the Poverty Truth Commission will share what we have learnt together and what we believe needs to happen now.
"It will be an inspiring and challenging afternoon. We will communicate through drama, film, music and the spoken word. We will share what we have learnt from one another. We will present our challenges to all parts of Scottish society.
"To register, please contract the Commission on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0141 248 2905. Pre-registration is important as places are limited. You can find out more about the Commission and its members at http://www.povertytruthcommission.org/."
